COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oktoberfest Lager: Robust, roasted, chocolate malt flavor, followed with a clean and crisp finish. Chocolate Brown. 15°

Beer Stories
History states that the first Oktoberfest was held on October 12, 1810 for the commemoration of the marriage between Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. Keeping up with Erie Brewing Company’s German brewing influence, our brewer created Fallenbock. This brew is a classic Oktoberfest Lager which creates a harmonious marriage of classic malts and hops;resulting in a wonderful clean crisp flavor. Happy Autumn!

12oz bottle. Deep brown-red color. Deep pungent malty sweetness. Slightly smoky and chocolaty and reminiscent of a Wee Heavy. This one is big and you know it’s got some alcohol in it. Sweet brown-sugar aroma. Pretty rugged stuff and hard to really categorize, but certainly worth trying.

EithCubes (4811) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Bottle. Slightly musty, grainy aroma, some bockish malt hints but nothing too appealing. Ruby mahogany pour, translucent, but with no head and looks kinda syrupy. Lightly toasty taste, crisp with faint mocha and a touch of cocoa, a little stale for a bock (though this bottle is fresh), including the slightly astringent and certainly rubbery aftertaste. Tongue numbing owing to the slightly high abv, and a bit fusel-y. Medium-full, slightly syrupy body. No thanks.

(12oz bottle) Small tan head that mostly diminishes, atop clear mahogany body. Aroma is moderately sweet, chocolate/caramel, orange. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, some chocolate, orange, earthy, light alcohol. Watery medium body.

Pours a dark brwon with a thi white head. Smells of coffee and apples. Tastes of apples and malt. Not many hops to be seen here at all.

Jayb0 (1022) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2007
Draft. Disappointingly bland with a slight, unwanted sourness. Lackluster head. Elevated alcohol hidden but not a dangerous beer as I wouldn’t drink more than one.

Bottle: The aroma consists of caramel, toffee, nuts, alcohol, light smoke, and faint fruit. It pours a transparent brownish-orange with a small off-white head that fades quickly to the point that the liquid looks still. The flavor starts wtih watery chocolate and caramel with some faint nuttiness and smoke in the finish. Thin but somewhat sticky mouthfeel.

sirpsycho (393) - Murrysville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Bottle. Pours a dark brown, almost exactly like Coca-Cola. Tan head that disappates quickly. Aroma of malt, slight caramel, maybe a touch of cherry hiding in the background. Flavor is a mix of caramel, slight chocolate, smoke and slight fruit, maybe cherry again. Not bad.

Bottle. Poured a dark brown bodyw ith nice head. aroma is faint - light sweet malt, smokey. Flavor has a pretty dominant choclate taste, smokey, sweet. Flavors are a little bit of everywhere. Possibly the best beer I have ever had from this brewery.

LinusStick (2838) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2007
Not a bad doppelbock, but a little light in everything. Aroma was a little weak; could pick up caramel and malt. Pour was a flat dark ruby with no head. Taste was decent...roasted and caramel malts that stay in the mouth until you swallow and all the tastes disappear. Good at hiding the alcohol., though.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Bottle. Body is about the color of darkly stained cherry wood with some of the reddish highlights where the light pours in. Aromas are sweet and malty with a little bit of an apple and fruit undertone. Flavor is sweet of apples and toffee with a touch of a spicy note that strikes now and again, but not consistently. Mouthfeel is failry smooth and a little silky, but there is a bit of an aftertaste that is slightly acidic and a little bit foul. Kind of like rotten peat moss with a chalky texture. Still, it is an inconsistent aftertaste that doesn’t follow each sip, and when it isn’t there, things are pleasant, but fairly unispiring.
